Both Derek Falvey and Thad Levine were in the clubhouse this afternoon, raising suspicions that cuts were coming.

But the Twins decided, once again, to delay the transactions. Not sure if its because of raging debates over certain players, or the Twins are eyeing someone on the waiver wire or something else.

Was told this morning that several players would be sent out, which didn't happen. Now I'm being told that tomorrow will be a busy transaction day. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, the Twins announced their plans for Opening Day - which includes a couple of events worth watching..

One, they will honor the late Yorman Landa by wearing a special Opening Day patch. Landa, whose first pitch hit 97 mph last year in spring training, died in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic. Since the Twins are playing host to the Royals, they also will honor Yordano Ventura, who also died in a car accident. The Royals are wearing a patch remembering Ventura all season long.

Also, former Twins coach Rick Stelmaszek will throw out the first pitch. Stelly was longtime coach under multiple administrations, and his stories continue to be re-told in the clubhouse today. Stelly also is fighting pancreatic cancer, which he announced the same day former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire announced he had prostate cancer.

The Twins have not sold out the home opener yet, but expect to do so in the coming days. Monday's forecast calls for temperatures near 60, so there's a good chance they'll get some people off the fence and into the ballpark.
